Transmission & Survivorship Applications (Deceased Estates)


The term Deceased Estate refers to the assets and property belonging to a person who has died.

One of the key aspects of a Deceased Estate settlement transaction is transferring the property to the surviving co-tenant or the Administrator or Executor as appointed under the Will.

A Survivorship Application is an application by a surviving joint tenant of a property to remove the name of the deceased person from the Certificate of Title.

A Transmission Application is an application by the Administrator or Executor to transfer or sell the property to a third party or the beneficiaries of the estate.

If you are the Administrator or Executor of someone’s Will then you may need to complete a Letter of Administration or Grant for Probate application.

Transmission Applications are lodged when the Granting of Probate is approved. This is what moves the ownership of the deceased’s property to you so that you can then move it to any other beneficiaries in the Will.
